I’ve just realised I’ve never really done a post on ethnic jewellery before. I’m planning on starting a Bollywood series with these!
Most people love traditional jewellery as it gives you a rich and a magnificent look. It completes an outfit and makes you feel like a royalty. No doubt! Also, with changing times and constant fashion inputs, traditional jewellery has taken a slightly different route.
Bring out the ethnic side of you..!
You may have noticed a list of beautiful Bollywood and Pakistani celebrities and fashionista’s wearing traditional ethnic jewellery with an array of stunning ensembles on social media and otherwise. It’s quite the fashion statement! The one thing that most definitely would have caught your attention are the stunning designs of the statement necklaces and earrings (even maang tikka – or otherwise known as a forehead jewellery item), ethnic/traditional jewellery instantly fires up any outfit! 🔥
So what makes it different?
Ethnic jewellery has come a long way; where previously it used to be worn with traditional outfits typically, the trend has taken a different route completely. Now, you see a lot of fashion influencers and bloggers wearing traditional ethnic jewellery with western outfits. I personally love this amalgamation of east meets west. A complete bohemian vibe to a western look sounds great to me.
One piece of jewellery can create a huge impact rather than piling on unnecessary ones.
So when the very lovely Sadia (click here) sent me this beautiful set to share with you, I was very much excited.
Gold, pearls and precious stone are inherent to any traditional jewellery. It depicts elegance, beauty and grace. No jewellery is complete without these elements to add a touch of sophistication.
It’s a beautiful multi layered necklace consisting of pearls to give off an elegant feel. The gold plating also adds to its luxe appeal.
What I personally like about this necklace is how lightweight it actually is. Traditionally, ethnic jewellery can be heavy to wear, but you get none of that feeling with this set. The white pearls look traditional yet modern and add to the sophistication of the design which is perfect for any look.
As well as it being lightweight, I love how the necklace can be adjusted. If you want it as a choker or a normal length necklace, you can do so accordingly.
It strikes the perfect balance of traditional yet modern in its appeal..!
“Tulip Jewels and Beauty is a jewellery shop of handmade antique and vintage gold plated kundan and meenakari jewellery. Tulip is a blend of trend and tradition”.
As it’s all handmade, the sets are made to your requirements and taste. If you wanted it in a specific colour, size or anything else, then the owner can do all that for you.
It’s the perfect set to wear to a dinner party (I have one coming up for the new year!), a wedding, Eid or Diwali or simply to rock over a white shirt and jeans.
What I’m loving about this trend is that there is no rule to follow, be as creative as you want and stand out from the crowd in making a style statement.
There is no denying that traditional jewellery sets look stunning on traditional outfits, however it can look equally gorgeous with a long gown or over a plain white shirt and jeans. It’s all about creativity.. have a look at the examples below..
